Homework for TOP

All day
I breathe in
the alphabet soup
of school air

so when I walk
outside at the end
of the day
and see a fresh
couple inches
of snow,
I’m thrilled.

I get home
and change
into warm clothes
then grab
my shovel
and scrape
the driveway.

One strip
after another
the driveway
turns from white
to black

One strip
after another
the snowfall
of pressure

I take deep breaths,
hold them
in my lungs,
work up
a little sweat,
and erase
my day.
